Mohanlal the complete actor

Updated on February 11, 2012

Mohanlal the complete actor

Every time i see mohanlal movies,he just amazed me again and again.For me, Mohanlal is the most versatile actors of all times in Indian cinema, who can do justice to any kind of roles given to him, be it the "sethumadhavan" in Kireedam or "Dasan" in Nadodikkattu or "Kunhikuttan" (Kathakali artist) in Vanaprastham.He has an amazing talent of touching the hearts of people through his natural acting.He is an actor with the ability to effectively portray the character's inner feelings and emotions and express what the director wants, very fast and convincingly. You can feel the pain and joy of the character he portrays on the screen. Many people say there is nothing much to act in that role, because they never 'felt' the acting.That's why he is known as the best natural actor in the country.

Once during the shooting of Vanaprastham a French Technician said: "He is the man born in the wrong side of the world; if he was from the other country he would have already had an Oscar"

Rajni Kanth: I'm sometimes jealous seeing the easiness of his acting. Just can't dream of doing some characters lal had done

Mammootty: A fantastic, marvelous and unpredictable actor

Aishwarya Rai: Lal's acting is a gift of God

Shahrukh Khan: Mohanlal is quite simply an amazing actor for me

Mani Ratnam: Hereafter, I will never work with a man of whom I am a fan. I often forgot to say 'Cut' in Iruvar

Kamal Haasan: Lal's substlety in dancing without mastering it astonishes even an eminent dancer

M. T. Vasudevan Nair: Mohanlal is a privilege not only to Malayalam but also to the World Cinema

Adoor Gopalakrishnan: Mohanlal owns rare acting style and his paculiarity of acting and versatality putting him in a different league of artists

Shilpa Shetty: If Mohanlal is there then I'm ready to do a Malayalam film

Jagathy Sreekumar : I'm always comfortable while acting with Mohanlal because he is the best actor I know. So i also try to raise up to him

K. Lohithadas: I feel that the upcoming generation can watch performance of Mohanlal and learn a lot. It can be called a textbook of acting

Shaji N Karun: We haven't exploited Mohanlal's talent yet

Hariharan (Director): His gift is that he underplays emotions

Priyadarshan: Lal never prepares for any role or scene. He is not bothered how he looks or what he does. Once the camera is on, he is a transformed person. As lal does only one film at a time, he knows everything about the film, nothing more

He is the first actor to be honored with the prestigious Lieutenant Colonel Post from Indian Army.

Recipient of "Padma Shri" & "Bharat" Awards.

He is the common man, he is the superman and sometimes he is everything in between and beyond.The more you try to describe him, the more he becomes indescribable!
